So Hohols are winning again? Hm, they are just amazing.Oh, right, It was a gesture of goodwill.
Is that why they left all that equipment there?
And yet they have lost their Flagship, a large Amphibious Landing Ship and another one out of commission. One newer missile corvette out of commission, and several smaller vessels sunk or out of commission. And they cannot venture within 100km of the Ukrainian coast, and a Russian flagged gas platform near Snake Island has been burning for ten days...
They have the ability to control only where if it's uncontested...
But my comments were not about that- they were addressing the idea that Snake Island had no strategic value. To the Russians, that was obviously not the case. Just the air defenses alone were of strategic value because they could threaten Ukrainian air operations in the area.
Moskva was providing the air defenses for that area and the fleet, they tried to use the Island to replace that loss. They failed.
